I don't exactly understand the rationale for this rule. In contrast
other packages the gnatgcc command is not needed to build dbusada.
explicitly Build-Depend on the upcoming default compiler gnat-4.6 so
compatibility to other Ada packages is guaranteed.
In section 4:
"Rule: Package ‘gnat’ is the default Ada compiler for Debian. All
containing Ada programs or libraries SHALL use this compiler."
This rule makes it explicit that the package 'gnat-4.6' is NOT the
Ada compiler; the package 'gnat' is.
And in 5.2.1:
"Rule: the -dev package SHALL Depend: on the packages gnat and
Rationale: depending on both packages ensures that only the default Ada
compiler can be used to build programs depending on the library,
to The Debian Ada compiler."
